Sometimes you choose the perfect color and type of carpet but it begins to look sad and lumpy. Over time, your carpet goes through a great deal of wear and tear in a number of different ways:
Carpet stretching involves pulling the carpeting tighter and re-securing it to the tack or anchor strips located along the perimeter of the room in the sub-flooring.
Fortunately, carpet wrinkles can be stretched out in most situations. The quicker the wrinkles are removed the less likely the carpet will have permanent creases.
The uneven carpet surface caused by wrinkles could cause children, pets, or the aged to trip and fall while walking across the room. In order to avert accidents, homeowners should consider having GM Services come to stretch out the wrinkles. There are other problems that can result. Cleaning becomes harder and the use of steamers will cause additional strain on the carpet, reducing its lifespan.
The benefits are threefold- increased safety, longer lifespan and enhanced beauty.
While not intuitive, a higher grade of carpet is more difficult to repair or install correctly than a cheap, thin material. If a carpet is of good quality, properly installed and properly maintained, it should stay in place and not need stretching. However, if you do see rolls and decide to stretch your carpet rather than replace it, it should never be stretched more than once. If you see rolls again, it’s time to replace the carpeting.
That is mostly a personal preference. It’s oten best to clean the carpet second since carpet stretches better dry. Then clean immediately after the stretching– in the same visit. However, the skilled technicians at GM Services might have another suggestion for your situation. Count on the experts to guide you in all areas of carpet care.
